While there’s never a bad time to visit Greater Fort Lauderdale—events happen one after the next, year-round—the region tends to sparkle even more around the holidays. From family-friendly festivals to swanky soirees hosted by big-name bands and artists, Lauderdale knows how to throw a party that will get everyone in the festive spirit. The highlight of the holiday season is the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade, known as “The Best Show On H2O.”
